Cupcake Birthday and Baked "Fried" Pickles

This weekend we celebrated my baby girl's 8th birthday. I feel like she is still 3, but her birth certificate says otherwise.

Even though the birthday festivities were stretched out over two days, we kept it low key. Day 1 we took her and her two best friends to Launch, an indoor trampoline park. We had a great time and then came back for some cake and ice cream. The end. Easy yet fun.

Day 2 we had a small family party with grandparents and her cousins. Of course I didn't take picture because I was too busy getting everything together (I'll never remember), but we had a make your own sandwich bar, cupcakes, and homemade ice cream sandwiches for dessert. I made giant cupcake shaped sugar cookies for favors. 

Red Velvet Cupcakes for Day 2

Due to my lack of photo documentation I will share a food that was a big hit. These are delicious! You are missing out big time if you don't try these. Thank you to the inventor. I found these on Fullflavorfood.com.
